About Us

Though we benefit from the global reach of a large corporation, Sonoco is proud of our established Australia/New Zealand team. 

The Australasian division of Sonoco encompasses eleven strategically placed plants servicing all major industrial centres in Australia and New Zealand.  Along with over 200 valued employees, and benefiting from the knowledge and resources available to us through Sonoco’s global footprint, we are well placed to identify and service our customers needs. We pride ourselves on our relationships with our  employees, customers, suppliers and community.  Our collective journey gives us the experience we need to meet our customers’ needs locally by mitigating product launch risks and minimizing time and financial investments.

Connecting Insights to Opportunities

We think of ourselves as a solutions company that offers packaging, rather than as a packaging company that happens to offer solutions. We work with our customers to craft a packaging-neutral 360° Customized Solution™ tailored to their specific needs and target markets. We are able to do this by offering the industry’s broadest range of packaging formats and services, combined with our unique i6 Innovation Process™ and our deep technical expertise in design, packaging, testing and material science.

The broadest portfolio of packaging substrates in the industry, combined with a process that allows the customer to conceptualize and evaluate multiple packaging options simultaneously, offers you faster product launches with fewer worries. Let us leverage our deep technical expertise in design, packaging, testing and material science to help you increase not only your speed to market, but also your speed to innovation.

Sustainability

Every day, we commit ourselves to the singular notion that smart packaging is more than plastics, cardboard and paper - it's a promise to people, products and our planet. You can learn more about Sonoco's overall sustainability initiatives on our corporate website
